1974 - Inside The Post Office

This image was taken inside the Post Office, where women were sending their telegrams. Unless otherwise stated, all persons are unidentified. Photographs taken by Ans Westra.


In 1969 the NZ Post building opened in Serlby Place to cater for the needs of the Porirua people with state-of-the-art postal services.

Today we have refurbished the three-storey building into a 36-room boutique apartment hotel aptly retaining and respecting the past – Welcome to the Post Hotel.

We offer a range of five room types catering to traveling professionals, sports teams, families, travellers and anyone who likes weekend getaways.

The Hotel has some onsite car parks as well as being within a 5-minute walk of Porirua Railway Station.

Sure, we may be the largest and newest quality accommodation offering in the basin, but we are totally service orientated so your stay with us is comfortable and enjoyable.

We are proud to join the Porirua community.
